Indian Patent Office working at Lightning Speeds

The featured image shows the iconic comic book character called Flash. This image is being used to draw a comparison between the speed with which the IPO is disposing the patent applications and he speed with which superhero flash moves

  Authored by Gaurav Mishra The Indian Patent Office appears to be breaking records with each passing day. From lightning fast publications to issue of examination reports and patent grants, the patent office is certainly en route to shedding off its sluggish and languid image. A few incidents – some experienced firsthand and others reported elsewhere are a testimonial to the patent office’s commitment to getting rid of the immense backlog that has been plaguing the offices and applicants alike. In a very recent experience, one patent application bearing the number 201641003901 (accessible here) was published in the official journal of the Indian...

Ready for Patent grants in 18 months?

The Image is of the launch of the Make in India campaign. The post is about patents and make in india. To read more click here.

Most people who have filed for a Patent in India will definitely understand the phrase “Life is too short to wait”. Narrowing this concept to the life of a Patent, it is as short as 20 years. The Patent grant system in India is a rather slow process and easily eats up more than a quarter of the Patents Life. Furthermore, in the absence of a concept like the “Patent term adjustment” followed in the United States, filing a Patent in India can diminish the prospects of a good return in good time. The world is growing exponentially and so is...

DIPP Draft Patent Rules

  There has been a lot of commotion and discussion regarding the recent DIPP proposed amendment to the Patent Rules, 2003. To any agonized patent applicant, these suggested amendments are a relief from the tardy process of awaiting examination and grant for an application which in toto approximately takes 6-7 years. The entire process delays the enjoyment of the monopolistic right offered by a patent. Thus, the number of years that an applicant enjoys his patent right gets significantly reduced and for many applicants, this becomes the root cause of several monetary losses. On the other hand, when there is no...
